- The Puma Fierce Metallic closely resembles the other shoes in the Fierce line. It features a lace-free cleatie construction with the extended tongue and heel collar which are fitted with two loops for an easy slip-on. The “metallic” effect of the shoe is created by the glossy synthetic layers in the upper. Another notable design feature is the snake-skin pattern on the toe box.
- A comfortable and snug fit of the trainer is ensured by the combination of textile and synthetic layers in the upper. The lockdown fit of the midfoot is maximized by a solid synthetic overlay topped up with a wide gore strap.
- The midsole of the shoe features an exaggerated heel thickness at both lateral and medial sides for enhanced steadiness.
- The outsole is made up of rubber, which utilizes treads for grip, as well as two pivot points for 360-degree twists and turns.
The Puma Fierce Metallic is available in a variety of women’s sizes, including half sizes as well. It generally runs true to size in terms of length. The shoe is offered in a B – Medium width. Also, the collar may require several repetitions of slipping on in order to break it in.
The outsole of the Puma Fierce Metallic makes use of solid rubber for better durability. It features strategically placed treads to deliver optimum grip and traction.
A dynamic multi-directional movement is provided by two pivot points – one under the toe and one in the heel section. These are areas of the outsole with a smoother surface and less traction, which allow for easy twists and turns.
The grooves placed throughout the outsole provide enough flexibility to accommodate the natural stride of the foot.
The foot is ensured to receive cushioning and shock-absorption from the EVA midsole compound.
The Puma Fierce Metallic maximizes the rear support by extending the midsole up in the lateral and medial sections to form a sturdy “holder” for the heel.
The cleatie construction of the Puma Fierce Metallic features the extended tongue and heel collar. There are two handy loops attached to them to aid in the wearing and removal of the shoe. The tongue and the collar are padded for extra comfort.
The rounded toe ensures that the forefoot gets enough space for a toe splay.
The trainer utilizes a textile upper with the synthetic overlays for a comfortable and breathable fit. At the same time, the foot is firmly locked in place by a caging synthetic overlay with an elastic gore strap.
